NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Patrick Sharp scored three goals and the Chicago Blackhawks avoided a rare second straight loss with a 5-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Friday night.

Sharp, Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa scored in a span of 4:04 early in the third period to give the Blackhawks a 4-1 lead. Sharp added his 25th of the season and capped his hat trick with less than 2 minutes to play after New Jersey had pulled to 4-3.

Duncan Keith had three assists and fellow defenseman Brent Seabrook two in the four-goal third period against Martin Brodeur. Antti Raanta made 24 saves for Chicago.

Defenseman Marek Zidlicky scored twice and Andy Greene once for New Jersey, which lost in regulation for only the second time in nine games (5-2-2).
